Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What type of mail system is being used and are you trying to work with the email BEFORE it is delivered to a certain location, are you trying to intercept before it's reaches the mail server or are you trying to reroute it after it arrives at the mail server?

I think here's a better way.
type:
shell "start.exe YOUR MAIL",vbhide

or
paste the text into a Model:

Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String,ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

and place any things you want to fire the event,try to type the text on the event:
ShellExecute 0&, vbNullString, "HERE TYPES YOUR MAIL", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus
